breaking news. i apologize. it's regarding the "washington post." and mary thompson has that very interesting story. mary? >> really interesting. jeff bezos, the founder of amazon.com, will be buying the newspaper publishing businesses of the "washington post" for $250 million. now, bezos is buying this with an entity that is his alone. this does not have anything to do with amazon.com. so it's basically a personal acquisition. the transition -- the transaction covers the "washington post," the newspaper, and other publishing businesses, including the express newspaper, the gazette newspapers, southern maryland newspapers, fairfax county times, greater washington publishing. what it doesn't include is slate magazine, the root.com and foreign policy. they're not part of the transaction, and will remain with the "washington post" company, as will wapo labs and social code businesses. once again, jeff bezos is paying $250 million for the newspaper publishing businesses of the "washington post." he has asked katherine wamuth, the ceo and publisher of the "washington post," as well as
is. the sale of "the washington post" is a tricky matter for the si single reason it is an original source of knowing what you and i should know about. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "all in with chris hayes" starts right now. >>> good evening from new york. i am in for are the great chris hayes. tonight on "all in" the sale of "the washington post" yesterday to billionaire jeff besos. i have thoughts and even feelings about all this since i actually work there. that is coming up. also tonight president obama makes a return to phoenix to talk about the great american dream of owning your own home. i submit homeownership isn't for everybody. it shouldn't be tax deductible. but first, did anything really interesting happen where you worked yesterday? >> the "the post" has been sold to jeff besos. >> every graham, not the only everybody but at the top of "the washington post" company had the same reaction when they started to think about the possibility which was great surprise. it was good for "the post. "we knew we could keep "the post" alive. our aspiration
'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. reince priebus is on the warpath again. the rnc chairman who has made bones trying to suppress african-american votes now has a plan to suppress the free media. having waged war on the 15th amendment, the one that gave african-americans the right to vote, he is now batting down the hatches on a free press. priebus's plan, which he described last night is to take control of the republican nominating process, deciding who will be the moderators of the debates, which debates will be authorized and which networks will be allowed to sponsor them. he, reince priebus will henceforth decide who gets to moderate the debates, where they will be permitted and which networks will be given the privilege of sponsoring them. he reince priebus will decide this big push for personal control is consistent with his oversight of a major republican plan to make it harder for minorities, the elderly and young voters to cast ballots. having loaded people down with more document requirements, voter photo i.d. cards and the rest and few opportunit
jeff bezos. >> everybody at the top of the "washington post" company had the same reaction when we first started to think about the possibility, which was great surprise. the reason we started to think about it is the point of our ownership was it was always supposed to be good for the post. we knew we could keep the post alive. we knew it could survive. but our aspirations for the most have always been hired by that. so we went to see if we could find a buyer. i have spent 42 years of my life working in this building. basically all of my working career. and i'm really devoted to its future and success. >> that's don graham. don graham is the grandson of eugene meyer, who bought the "washington post" in 1933. he's the son of -- he now runs the "washington post" company. he loves the company. he's an amazing, amazing leader. that's don graham saying he's selling the newspaper his family built to amazon founder jeff bezos and he's doing it. he's doing it because he thinks it is necessary for the institution to thrive because the business model that was built around that paper, around
of dictator throwing thunder bolts out of the sky in washington. he's not. this is a federal system and that means the states are involved. and that's as it should be. and i think more power to him -- or more kudos to had him for wanting to do it that way. some states are participating in the health care markets. some are not. the feds will do it if the states don't. on immigration, there's a role for the states and i think it is going to be an ecpabded role for the states in any kind of reform. on health care, the interesting thing to me is that the business -- a lot of the business community wants obama care to go through. by business community, i mean hospitals, insurers, health care networks, they want more customers. so they went to this republican red state governor and said, you know what? this is pro business. be for it. and she was. >> i think to howard's point, the notion that no good deed goes unpunished. jan brewer is expanding the medical roles which i think is a very good move. there's very little that i think jan brewer does that's good. this is a good thing. low-inco

. >>> meanwhile, a stunner the world of media, washington post selling the newspaper publishing businesses including amazon to jeff bezos, and julia boorstin has more on that blockbuster deal. >> this news took everyone including editors and writer at the post by surprise. the washington post's company whose name will change saw the stock rise with caplan tech being sold and now what the billionaire icon plans to do with the newspaper. jeff bezos stressed what a newspaper plays in a free society, and he says that the newspaper's duty remain s s to readers and not the owner. the charting of the map ahead is not going to be easy, and there is a need to invent, which means we will need to experiment. and after knowing each other for a decade, this came together in the conference last month. >> we met at a conference fa face-to-face twice. the second week in july. we spent an hour together, and he asked for time to study the numbers, and then we spent another two hour s together, an at the end he said he wanted to go ahead. >>> that is hardly the first billionaire to buy into publish i ing. th
with a predictably defensive editorial by mayor michael bloomberg in the "washington post" in which the mayor took turns defending stop and fricsk and attacking the "washington post," itself, and others were criticizing the practice saying "the men and women who protect our city from criminals and terrorists deserve better than to have their integrity impugned in a courtroom or a newspaper especially when the facts are so clearly on their side." even today speaking at a press conference, touting the largest gun seizure in new york history, both men looked to play up the role of stop and frisk in getting guns off the street. >> wiretap conversations from this investigation show that one of the gun traffickers' biggest concerns was stop, question, frisk. >> campbell didn't want to risk it being found by new york police and is heard saying, "yeah. i'm in charlotte now. i can't take them to my house, to my side of town, in brownsville. we got, like, watchamacallit, stop and frisk. >> mayor bloomberg and commissioner kelly doubling down and repeating the same statements again and again over stop and fr

a remarkable op-ed in the tennessean defending governing and bipartisanship. wrote, washington needs more, not fewer, conservatives who know how to govern. i know if you only have 45 votes and you need 60 senators to get something important done, like balancing the budget, then you have to work with other people. that is, if you really care about solving the problem. if you really want to get it resolved instead of just making a speech. as presidential hopefuls start trekking to iowa, the republican chairman of iowa's largest county switched its party registration to independent. in his resignation letter, the polk county chairman write, i'm disappointed with the republican party at the national level. i'm disappointed with the republican party at the statewide level. i'm disappointed with the republican party at the countywide level. helping a dysfunctioning party that does not want to address its problems is enabling it. this fight between the establishment and money wing of the gop and the tea party has taken place behind the scenes. it's clear now that many believe they should fight b

billionaire founder of amazon.com had added a little something called "the washington post" to his portfolio of investments alongside the 10,000-year clock and that mountain in west texas and also a company that makes little tiny mobile air bags that are supposed to deploy when they sense that you might be dropping your cell phone. and also pets.com and cosmo.com both of which went out of business when he invested in them. when news broke today that "the washington post" was being bought by jeff bezos for $250 million cash, which is less than 1% of what he is worth, does what that means and what you think about that depend more on what you think about the "washington post" as an institution or what you think of jeff bezos as a guy? how much does ownership of news outlets make a difference in the worth of what those news outlets produce? that is becoming a less and less abstract question all the time in our country now. because as the news business becomes totally fiscally devalued, frankly, random people can buy even its most esteemed and important pillars for the change rolling around in th
on getting things done in a washington where nothing is getting done, new jersey governor chris christie fashions himself the same type doer of a get it done guy, it has been working for christy in a blue state it worked for brown initially in a more blew -- blue state, now brown is raising the takeses beyond his home state. it more than00s of a rumble on the right, this is the battle to watch, the months and years ahead, that for soul of the republican party, because there are those who look at chris christie, and maybe brown as too pregmatic, the critics say to give rand a hand into guys like these guys the finger, conservative argue such accommodate ores never make it to the presidency, should not, levin telling me they are bad for the party's future. >> they argue they have been too accommodating, what do you think of that? >> the republican party sadly is ossifying, it will turn into old wig party and into nothing. it does not stand for anything. this is going to be a problem going forward in terms of elections. neil: what is lost in this argument, someone will be elected president
.s. government to a halt and confront republican leaders in washington with its ultimatum. those worried leaders do as they're told to kill obama care even if that means shutting down the federal government or else. fueling this is the right-wing base of the country that now commands the fears of republican congressmen far more than anything the weak john boehner can say or do or pretend to do or hope to do. here is a town hall meeting held by robert pettinger. pay close attention to who's calling the attention here. does this guy look anything like john boehner? even a little? >> real quick, easy question. this is what the tea party wants to know. will you vote with mike lee to defund obama care? yes or no? >> a thoughtful answer? >> i want yes or no. >> no. >> if any republican votes against it, does not get funded. that's a fact. >> it has to be signed by the president of the united states. >> will you make a stand -- >> shut down the government. >> do you think harry reid is going to pass that in the senate? >> it doesn't matter. >> we need to show the american people we stand for conservati
. >> thank you so much for inviting me, rachel. >> so seeing the "washington post" reporting on this today was the first i learned about it, and i don't totally understand. i feel like i have been waiting to hear some sort of national answer from democrats about a national strategy to combat what is obviously a national republican strategy to roll back voting rights. what exactly are you toidoing? >> what the american values first voting rights strategy, is a 50-state strategy to promote policies and legislation that will, you know, ease access to voting as well as opposing the myriad of voter suppression measures going on in the states. over 30 states right now have either passed legislation or are in the process of passing legislation that would make it more difficult for people to vote. we're talking about students. we're talking about the disabled. we're talking about elderly. we're talking about minorities. this is really a truly -- it's an attack upon, you know, american values and, you know, american rights. >> we have been reporting on that for years now in terms of these very aggr

by the ghost of shutdowns past. it is received wisdom in washington that the 1995 government shutdown was a terrible loss for republicans and we should never go there again. i don't believe the evidence supports that conclusion. >> the shutdown wasn't a terrible loss for republicans? it turned newt gingrich into a national laughingstock. it cost him his job as house speaker and sent president clinton soaring to reelection. but these gop extremists don't care. take house majority leader eric cantor. he wants even more spending cuts. >> but the house really is the only one who has consistently engaged in trying to address the spending problem, all the while keeping our eye focused on trying to deal with the ultimate problem, which is this growing deficit. >> the growing deficit? that's just wrong. the deficit has gone down by $800 million since the president took office. that the fastest deficit reduction since world war ii. the gop agenda literally doesn't add up. that's why their big challenge now is not on the facts but on how to confuse voters. republicans are heading home armed wit
washington, d.c., i'm ezra klein in for the terrific chris hayes, tonight on all in, the cold war may be over, but it doesn't feel like it's all that over. it's getting chilly actually. from the edward snowden situation to russia's treatment of gays and lesbians, u.s./russia relationship is on the rocks. >>> we're learning about another terror plot that was foiled. what do new york city and detroit have in common? bankruptcy. all that is ahead. do you remember this little hot mic slip during the election. >> this is my last election. >> yeah. >> after my election, i have more flexibility. >> i will transmit this information. it is such a great line. and people thought at the time, it was a big scandal. people thought they knew what it meant. president obama was secretly telling dmitri medvedev to ignore all the election year politics, it's just politics. after that, the u.s. and russia could be great friends. maybe that wasn't it, maybe the flexibility he was speaking about was a great insult. a yo mama joke, perhaps, that would better explain what has happened since. relations are deteriorat
, from washington. i'm ezra klein sitting in for the one and the only christopher l. hayes. tonight on "all in" nuclear states, russia and the u.s., own 94% of the world's nuclear weapons. yes, 94% was that number. which makes this current spat a bit more tense, right? >>> also tonight the fight over obama care takes a recess. the summer of the angry anti-obama care town hall is back. but unlike last time this story played out, it is republicans who are feeling the heat. >>> plus why the federal government needs to rethink the science around medical marijuana. all that is ahead. >>> but tonight we begin with the u.s. and russia relations in a downward and dangerous spiral. today white house spokesperson jay carney spent most of his daily briefing fielding questions about russia. the president announced a rare news conference for tomorrow. we expect he will answer a flood of questions about the increasingly chilly relations between the two countries. now, when you hear the u.s. and russia are bickering, when you hear their relationship is deteriorating or on the rocks, i want you to
. the managing editor of foreign affairs writes, washington backed hosni mubarak's dictatorship until mubarak had no chance of surviving. then when they threw him out, obama switched course again. the vacillation, all sides in egypt hate the united states which they're convinced backed their enemy. certainly the fact that we have called and not called this coup, it makes an already complex situation that much more complex. what does the president do? >> objectively speaking, this is about the least desirable outcome you could possibly have crafted if you were starting from the beginning. so, you know, they can't say that they have handled this well. there is plenty of blame to go around. the president needs to come out and pick a side. say something firm. what's going on here? what is the -- what is the end game here? the army seems to be behaving with impunity. >> yes. >> as they've said. there could be hundreds of people that have been killed here. josh hirsch reporting from over there was saying this morning after the police started clearing out the protests, then more protesters came from the
to be honest, and you might hear a helicopter flying past me, i think washington's reaction has been to the september where cairo and the generals may have concluded washington believes its relationship is important strategical strategically, but they haven't decided to alter it after a week whereas many as 1,000 lost their lives. they need that relationship to keep israel secure in the region, as well. and what we've seen so far from washington is a cancellation of military exercise. that's frankly tokenistic in many ways. the european union expressing outrage saying we'll urgently review relations, asking all sides to refrain from violence. so western powers seemingly stepping forward to say we're very upset about this and we may consider changing our actions in the future, but really the violence and crackdown here which has so many aghast haven't significantly changed the character of western egyptian relations. >> thanks, nick. >>> it does not come more complicated than egypt. president obama summed it up in a single sentence. >>> while we want to sustain our relationship with e
that ole party. just cruel. joining me now is congressman jim mcdermott, democrat from washington, and joan walsh, editor at large for salon.com. thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> thanks, reverend al. >> good to be here. >> congressman, how can the gop justify putting politics before people like this? >> well, it's because they don't know what people feel, i guess. that's the only way i can explain it. because they're all talking about money and deficits and this kind of stuff. they're not looking at the people, like that little girl. if you look at people who are in the waiting room or in the emergency room and realize that they waited too long because they didn't have health insurance, you wish that they could have a health insurance system, and that's really what the president is offering to the country. we're not taking over the health care system in the government, we're offering people an opportunity to buy in to private health care plans at a cost that they can afford, and that's really taking away that anxiety is really what this is all about. but the republicans hav
. i'm chris matthews back in washington. in the news tonight, hillary clinton way ahead of schedule. suddenly it's as if she's the next president, even if barack obama is still president. but wait. wait a minute. it wasn't supposed to be like this. the hillary bandwagon wasn't set to rumble till after the 2014 elections, till the hillary forces were fully organized and ready to make their kick. why suddenly does it feel like she's in the driver's seat? well, people are either positioning themselves already for a role in hillary's government or acting to lock in positions they have with either her or the few people she would give authority to hire for her. why does it feel like the train has already left the station? what does this mean for the other side? if the republicans are also looking for jobs in 2016 and need to win to get those jobs, if they see her on the move already, does that mean they're more likely to push a candidate who actually has a good chance of boxing her out for the center? those people in the middle politically? in other words, new jersey governor chris christ
in washington. there's news tonight that some on the american right are plotting the global explosion of a default on the u.s. national debt this fall. the plot is the to tie the regular vote to extend the debt skeel together obliteration of the affordable care act. according to the plans leaked to right leaning news organizations, any measure to finance the health care act would detonate refusal to make good on american debt, the first time this has happened in this country's history. the repercussions of which could explode the world economic order. do the leaders of the republican party intend to go this far? do they dare to sabotage the american economy and much of the world economy in order to defund a program, the affordable care act that is the law of the land? will they go to this drastic extreme to intimidate the u.s. congress or the president or both? and if so, is this the extreme case where ideological zealotry trumps even the most preliminarial loyalty to the common national interests where anything goes, where the ends justify whatever means there are to be had no matter
